[image]Tropical Storm Eugene - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data obtained courtesy of the team.
Tropical Storm Eugene is the fifth named Pacific Ocean hurricane of the season. Eugene is shown here as observed by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite. These data were obtained at 17:50 UTC (10:50 Pacific Daylight Time) on July 19, 2005. At this time, Eugene was a well formed spiral storm, though well below hurricane strength with winds around 115 kilometers per hour (60 knots)...

[image]Hurricane Hilary - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data obtained from the team.
Hurricane Hilary is shown here as observed by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite at 1:45 p.m. local time, on August 22, 2005. Located off the coast of northern Mexico in the Pacific Ocean, the hurricane has been gathering strength and organizing into a classic spiral structure for several days. It appears here at its peak strength, with sustained winds of around 150 kilometers per hour (90 miles per hour)...

[image]von Karman Vortices - Image provided by the Satellite Systems Branch.
Each of these swirling clouds is the result of a meteorological phenomenon known as a von Karman vortex. These vortices appeared over Alexander Selkirk Island in the southern Pacific Ocean. Rising precipitously from the surrounding waters, the island’s highest point is nearly a mile (1.6 km) above sea level. As wind-driven clouds encounter this obstacle, they flow around it to form large, spinning eddies.This image was acquired by Landsat 7’s Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) sensor on Se...

[image]Sheveluch Volcano Erupts - NASA GSFC image courtesy Jacques Descloitres,
Brown ash darkens the snow to the southeast of the Sheveluch Volcano on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula following another of the volcano’s frequent eruptions. According to the Kamchatkan Volcanic Eruptions Response Team, the volcano began an explosive eruption at 13:00 UTC on May 9, 2004, sending a plume of ash up 8,000 meters (26,400 feet) into the atmosphere. When the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite passed over nearly 12 hours later, early on ...

The huge expanse of the Pacific Ocean gives rise to myriad cloud forms. In these true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images to very different cloud patterns are seen. One shows ship tracks (clouds that form around the emissions or exhaust from ships); the other shows a large stratocumulus cloud deck. Sensor: Terra/MODIS. Data Start Date: 10/27/02. Data End Date: 10/27/02.

This true-color image from July 24, 2002, shows Hurricane Elida off the coast of Mexico in the Pacific Ocean. Elida may look like a large, menacing storm, but did not, in fact, make landfall. The common track for storms that originate in that part of the ocean is to drift northwest, away from land. They do, however, kick up powerful, which draws surfers from all over the world.

[image]Ship Tracks in the Sky - Image courtesy Jacques Descloitres, at NASA GSFC
Because clouds represent an area of great uncertainty in studies of global climate, scientists are interested in better understanding the processes by which clouds form and change over time. In recent years, scientists have turned their attention to the ways in which human-produced aerosol pollution modifies clouds. One area that has drawn scientists’ attention is “ship tracks,” or clouds that form from the sulfate aerosols released by large ships...

[image]Eruption of Anatahan - Image courtesy the NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center
Although tiny, the volcanic island of Anatahan has a long reach. Since its first recorded eruption in May 2003, the twin-volcano island has been erupting off and on, spitting out clouds of volcanic ash and gases that spread over a broad area of the Pacific Ocean. Since a large eruption on April 5, 2005 (see additional images in this series), Anatahan has been smoldering. These two images from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASa’s Aqua satellite show a long, thin p...

[image]Hawaiian Islands, Pacific Ocean - NASA/Johnson Space Center (NASA-JSC)
This cloudy view of the Hawaiian Islands (21.0N, 157.5W) demonstrates the phenomena of island water wakes and, to a lesser extent, cloud wakes as well. The islands form an obstruction to the ocean current flow and in effect create an observable turbulence in the water on the backside of the islands. The same effect can be observed in clouds as they leave wind blown wisps or streamers around obstacles in their path.

Around the equator in much of the Pacific Ocean, concentrations of ocean plant life are generally low. This ''marine desert'' occurs because this part of the ocean is low in iron, a key nutrient that the ocean's tiny plants -- called phytoplankton -- require. However, during the La Nina episode that followed the strong El Nino in 1997, satellites recorded a major phytoplankton bloom in the equatorial Pacific...

Several unique formations of clouds are draped over this part of the eastern Pacific Ocean. At top, the clouds in the western portion of the cloud chain lock together like vertebra. The center strip of clouds has the appearance of a feather boa, while the clouds at bottom look like an eruption of cotton balls from the surface of the ocean...
